Description - Elizabeth and Zenobia by Jessica Miller
In the tradition of Neil Gaiman's Coraline and Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland comes a wonderfully imaginative, spooky and intricate novel for 10-13 year olds.
Timid Elizabeth and her unusual and fearless friend Zenobia arrive at Witheringe House, the old manor where Elizabeth's father and he beloved sister Tourmaline lived as children. Zenobia loves it-she's convinced it's haunted and is eager to make contact with a spirit presence. Elizabeth is relieved when her efforts seem to come to nothing.
But strange things begin to happen at Witheringe House, especially in the East Wing, where Elizabeth and Zenobia have been forbidden to explore.
Why do the flowers and vines on the wallpaper in the nursery seem to be alive? Could it have something to do with the strange book that tells a different story after midnight? And what really happened to Tourmaline all those years ago?
Elizabeth and Zenobia is a wonderfully mysterious middle-grade adventure story about friendship and courage and the power of imagination.
